  • Who can enter quilts?
    • Any member of the guild who has paid dues for 2023-2024 can enter 2 quilts plus challenge quilts and one other wearable item or Fabric Art object in a given year. These are quilts that haven't been shown in prior RSQ shows. The only criterion for entering a quilt is that you want other people to see your quilt!
    • There is also a challenge for which you make a special quilt. The 2023 theme is "Masterpieces". The challenge quilts should have a perimeter of no more than 120 inches.

  • Does my bee quilt count against my total?
    • Bee quilts do not count against a member's total. A bee quilt is a single quilt which was worked on by the members of a bee. Note that bee challenge quilts do not count against a member's total either. Bee challenge quilts would be a number of quilts made by bee members according to the bee's selected theme, typically one per bee member.

  • What if I don't finish my quilt?
    • You can un-register the quilt at any time by email. Please un-register it before the registration deadline if possible. We would like to know so we won't expect it at the show, don't have to print labels and can plan where the quilts will hang.

  • What can I do to help?
    • SELL RAFFLE TICKETS: Every ticket sold funds our programming and speakers, so members are encouraged to buy and sell as many as possible. Tickets are available at guild meetings, and by contacting the raffle coordinator
    • MAKE ITEMS FOR THE BOUTIQUE: You can sell items and make money at the boutique. You get 80% and the guild keeps 20%. We also love to have items whose proceeds are totally donated to the guild.
    • VOLUNTEER FOR THE SHOW: We need help setting up on Friday, from 9 - 3, having people around during for various tasks - entrance fees, raffle tickets, white gloves, boutique, bake table, and tearing down the show (Sunday 4-7:00). Many hands make light work! Even if you don't have a quilt in the show, you are expected to volunteer for at at least one shift during the show. To sign up to volunteer you may also email the volunteer coordinator the time(s) you are available to work.
    • BAKE TABLE: Donations of baked goods are needed for the show.

Do not add any of our addresses to mailing lists! First of all, it's wrong. Second, you'll get yourself in trouble if you get lots of unsubscribe requests from people who you added without permission. If you add people without their permission you are sending spam. If you don't ask first it's spam even if it's a quilting-related list!
